Redemption songs

12. september 2007

Old pirates, yes, they rob i;
Sold I to the merchant ships,
Minutes after they took i
From the bottomless pit.
But my hand was made strong
By the and of the almighty.
We forward in this generation
Triumphantly.
Wont you help to sing
These songs of freedom? –
cause all I ever have:
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs.

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our minds.
Have no fear for atomic energy,
cause none of them can stop the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look? ooh!
Some say its just a part of it:
Weve got to fulfil de book.

Wont you help to sing
These songs of freedom? –
cause all I ever have:
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs.

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our mind.
Wo! have no fear for atomic energy,
cause none of them-a can-a stop-a the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look?
Yes, some say its just a part of it:
Weve got to fulfil de book.
Wont you help to sing
Dese songs of freedom? –
cause all I ever had:
Redemption songs –
All I ever had:
Redemption songs:
These songs of freedom,
Songs of freedom

Måske er det, hvad vi har brug for: Redemption og Redemption Songs!? Lyt til Joe Strummers ord og sang:

Tak til Mette for inspirationen. Og Mette følger op på det med Redemption her.

More Redemption:

Johnny Cash/ Redemption:

Bob Marley / Redemption Song:

En fin, jazzy udgave af Redemption Song med Cassandra Wilson:

Ziggy Marley & The Chieftains – i en irisk-inspireret udgave:

Redemption Song er, som Mette anfører, indspillet af et hav af kunstnere, fra Johnny Cash over Annie Lennox til Chris Cornell. Flere udgaver kan – i uddrag – høre her.

    Joe Strummers version är underbar! Jag har oerhört svårt för reggae, så jag klarar tyvärr inte av Marleys originalversion. Underbart att någon (Joe Strummer) jämnar vägen för mig genom att göra en alternativ version. Brukar komma på mig själv med att gå runt och sjunga den…

    @Ika: Ja, det er en dejlig, loyal udgave, Strummer har lavet. Det samme gælder den version, han lavede sammen med Johnny Cash (på Unchained-boksen).

  3. Tina - omme i London kommentarer:

    Hmmm… den bliver altsaa aldrig min yndlingsversion af en ellers smuk sang. Den skal synges paa jamaicansk, for at have den rigtige slagkraft.
